EXAIR Atomizing Spray Nozzles Make It Nice & Foggy In Greenhouses

Fog. Nobody likes driving in it. It’s downright perilous to sailing vessels on the open water, but especially those near the shore, or other watercraft. Flights get delayed or cancelled, stranding travelers in airport terminals far from home, and keeping many from pressing matters that necessitated the speed of an airline flight in the first place.  Oh, and it’s ALWAYS where the bad guy is hiding in the movies.  You can tell by the ominous low-string music that starts playing right before things get real nefarious.

You know who LIKES fog, though?  Greenhouse operators.  Their plants get plenty of water to sustain their growth from the well-irrigated soil, but the leaves & petals can wither and get discolored if the humidity isn’t kept at a high level.

The same is true for the parts of a greenhouse that folks don’t see when they’re selecting the annuals to plant on the next nice spring weekend (which we should be coming up on quite soon here!) – like the seed germination chambers.  I had the pleasure of helping a greenhouse operator recently, who needed to replace some old, and malfunctioning, nozzles in one of their germination chambers.  They were interested in the extremely fine mist that our Atomizing Spray Nozzles produce.  After some experimentation with a couple of different flow rates & patterns, they determined that the Model AW1020SS (Wide Angle Round Pattern, Internal Mix) Atomizing Spray Nozzles provided optimal results.

The fine, atomized mist (left) produced by the EXAIR AW1020SS (right) optimizes the seed germination in this chamber.

As the fogging systems in their other chambers start to fail, they’ve been replacing them with the AW1020SS’.  We shipped them two earlier this week.

With (90) distinct models to choose from, we’ve got the solution to your liquid spraying application.

EXAIR Atomizing Spray Nozzles offer an incredibly wide range of flow rates, patterns, and adjustability to suit most any application that requires a fine liquid mist.  If you’d like to find out more, give me a call.
